You will find a size guide for this garment in the product images. I recommend laying flat a t-shirt you already own and like the fit of, then measuring to see how this garment will compare.
This T-shirt dress has a crew neck and a relaxed, loose fit. (size guide available in product listings). These garments are made from 100% organic cotton.
Vintage and second hand fabric
The vintage and secondhand fabrics used in my designs are sourced from local charity shops, Brocantes in France and via kind donations from fellow makers, looking to recycle their unwanted textile offcuts. All fabrics are machine washed before being repurposed.
Each embellished garment is decorated with secondhand or vintage fabric applique panels. These are cut out by hand and machine stitched into place. A large and ornate costume jewellery inspired vinyl print is pressed over the applique panels before being further adorned with 2d, vinyl printed, fabric ‘jewels’.
Caring for your Embellished T-shirt dress
All my Embellished garments are machine washable at 30 degrees. In order to keep the textural pieces of your embellishment in good condition a gentle cycle is recommended.
Shake out after washing and allow to dry naturally on a clothes rack or washing line.
Please DO NOT tumble dry or iron directly over the print. Turn inside out before ironing.
